Remove the "capcha" puzzles for Public Pair accessed from EBC

Please remove the "capcha" puzzles for people signed on to EBS when accessing Public PAIR. With access to public applications not associated with the user's customer number removed in Private PAIR, it is apparently necessary to go through repeated "capcha" puzzles until one gets it right by "properly" identifying the partial blocks with crosswalks or where people had been walking their dogs or whatever the current puzzle... more »

Connect OEDIS-CI to MyUSPTO

In order to change my official contact information. I need to mail in a form or login into the Office of Enrollment of Discipline. This happens very rarely (2-10 years) and many practitioners don't bother to update it. It would be much better if it was tied to the MyUSPTO account.

PAIR authentication

Allow secondary authentication rather than restrict PAIR authentication to one of the two options (email or phone). During the recent problem with email authentication it would have been nice to be able to temporarily switch to phone authentication.

Use of Customer Number to Quickly Create a Collection

Why can't we simply use files associated with our customer number to create a collection?

 

I'm new to this but it appears that I have to enter each application individually and manually.

 

This seems to be a tremendous waste of time.

 

Thank you.

Suggestions for Patent Center 1. In the USPTO Fees section, allow for searching of fees, similar to the ability to search for forms. While searching by category is nice, it would be great if we could drill down deeper (for example, searching by description of fee (key words) or fee code (when confirming correct codes were charged)). 2.

Sponsored User and pre-populated email address on EFS

There was a recent change to the MyUSPTO when filing either a new patent application or follow-on patent filing where the sponsored user's email address was pre-populated. Our firm does not use the sponsored user's email address as a way of communicating. Our firm has a general email box for communicating with the USPTO. I would like to see that change reversed as soon as possible so we can input our general email... more »

link searches from USPTO office account to MyUSPTO account

I'm a new user of the USPTO search tools. I have been using the search tools/computers at the San Jose USPTO office, but have learned that the workstation accounts are different from the My USPTO accounts and that the searches I create on the USPTO workstations does not show up in MyUSPTO web based account. Can These be connected?

There is a block that shows the system status but currently the amount of information displayed is insufficient for any decision making/evaluation.
